    My first one of these. It's mandatory to eat some chocolate with this, right? Thoroughly impressed, especially given the price and availability.

    Goose Island Baudoinia out at Tap House Grill, Westmont, Il.

    This beer is phenomenal, even if it is The BCBS Fungus beer.

    i haven't tried too many porters, Edmund Fitzgerald has been at the top of that list so far, but this one is definitely right up there with it, very good.

    so this song just came up on Pandora, this was my jam when it was on EA MVP Baseball '03ish haha. don't think i've heard it since i've played that game.

    I managed to finally land some Sucks this week (2 sixers), but I'm really trying to save it for Saturday. It'll taste better shared with friends, anyhow.

    Tonight I'm going with something completely different- Maniacal Joker
    [​IMG]

    Nightmare-inducing label. The beer- not so much. It could use some tweaking, but it's still a solid English style barleywine.

    Saw some folks drinking this on the thread, and since I happen to have a bottle - 'cuz it was on my list of "beers-I've-never-had-but-I-know-I-can-get" from the Beers Hall of Fame list - I figured, what better time?

    Lagunitas' Little Sumpin' Sumpin'

    Now that I have a weizen glass, any beers made with wheat are going in it. Simple. It's like a New Years' resolution-thing.

    Similar to a hefeweizen, but notice the clarity of the beer (no yeast at the bottom of the bottle), and it had "American" IPA hop tastes on top of the wheat malts. Real good stuff.

    Is it my imagination, or does the weizen glass make you drink the beer more quickly? It's like, I just can't help but quaff it, y'know? Damn. Gone already.

    Mmmm. :)

    This. My first Sucks. It is very tasty. I'd take a pic but my wife will bust the balls she so heavily relies upon.

    It really is different. That can be a bad or good thing but for me I was trying to find out what it was doing and maybe on that merit I liked it for challenging me.(Like the Birrificio del Ducato L'Ultima Luna did)

    It goes without saying, incredibly delishious beer day in and day out. Finished my last 3 to make room in my fridge for a case of Hopslam and hopefully at least a couple 4 packs of Bells Black Note that I will be picking up when visiting Bell's brewery for my first time tomorrow!!
